Internet meme sensation Grumpy Cat is on her way to Vancouver to film her Christmas movie. But first she had to wrap up her five-city book tour for The Grumpy Guide to Life: Observations by Grumpy Cat. Yes, really. Hundreds of fans lined up at 7 a.m. in Toronto on Saturday for a chance to get a photo with the permanently frowning feline at Indigo in the Eaton Centre. Toronto was the final stop of the tour.
Next up is the movie: Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever starts filming in Vancouver next weekend [with an extended shoot inside Coquitlam Centre the following week. Dare we hope for a sighting] with a Santa hat? No doubt there will be security because Grumpy Cat is a social media mega-celebrity with 5 million Facebook and 200,000 Twitter followers.
Two years ago, Grumpy Cat was simply Tardar Sauce (real name), a cat with a permanent frown caused by feline dwarfism — until the brother of her owner, Tabby Bundesen, posted a photo on Reddit and a gazillion memes later, this cat is starring in her own movie in Vancouver.
Filming August 21st to September 15th (dates subject to change).
